Colorado

Colorado is a mountainous state with severe and often unpredictable weather on the roads. Harsh winters and steep roads can make freight trucking dangerous, however most Colorado shipping is done by truck. The state economy is driven by a variety of industries including agriculture, meat production, mining, drilling, and manufacturing. There is a comparatively small volume of goods moving through the state, so low Colorado freight shipping prices may be difficult to find, especially in the winter. However, shipping goods out of the state is often less expensive than shipping goods in. LTL shipping can be affordable because most of the state's freight shipping is done via truck rather than rail or air.
